ComputerMinds.co.uk: 10 Interesting Drupal Modules

Planet Drupal - 18 June 2019 - 6:07am

Drupal is lucky to benefit from a very active community of developers meaning that there is a wide and varied range of contributed modules to extend the functionality of Drupal core. In this article we’ll take a quick look at 10 interesting contributed modules; some are well known whilst others are a little bit more obscure.

1. Admin_menu (D7) / Admin_toolbar (D8)

Out of the box the Drupal admin interface can be a bit unwieldy and whilst this has been significantly improved over the years, especially with the advent of Drupal 8, there’s still room for improvement. Enter admin_menu/admin_toolbar which are two similar modules to make navigating the admin interface a whole lot easier by providing a neat little toolbar with drop downs so you can navigate the whole admin interface from any page of your site.

2. Kraken

This module allows you to use the kraken.io web service to optimise images on your website. It works be exposing a kraken optimise image style effect which can be applied to image styles on your Drupal website.

3. Popup_field_group

This is a nice little module maintained by ComputerMinds which gives the option to display the children of a field group in a popup overlay. Buttons are exposed to toggle the popup.

4. Flood_unblock

Drupal 7 introduced a feature to prevent brute force attacks meaning that no more than five failed login attempts per user in any six hour period or no more than 50 failed attempts from an IP address in a one hour period are allowed. Failed login attempts are recorded in the flood table and this module gives administrators an easy way to unblock users that have exceeded these limits.

5. Paragraphs

Paragraphs give much greater control over content creation on your Drupal site. A paragraph is a set of fields which has its own theme associated with it to give much greater flexibility over how content gets rendered on your site. So for example you might have a paragraph which floats an image left and displays text on the right - the possibilities are endless. Take a look at tiles in action to find out more about working with paragraphs (we use the term tiles to mean the same thing!)

6. Stage_file_proxy

This module is useful when working on a development version of your Drupal site by providing a proxy to the production site’s files directory. When you need a production file the module maps this the production files directory and downloads it to your development files directory.

7. Field_display_label

This is a nice little module to allow you to change a field label on the edit form so that it’s difference to what’s rendered when the field is displayed. So for example you might have a name field labelled ‘what’s your name?’ on the edit form which just renders ‘name’ when it’s displayed.

8. Custom_add_another

Another simple module maintained by ComputerMinds which gives site admins the ability to customise the ‘add another’ text for multi valued fields.

9. Notice_killer

This is a nice little module that will split out PHP notices and warnings from other Drupal notices and also logs a bit more information about each so that you can track them down and fix them more easily.

10. Rabbit_hole

This is a useful module that prevents certain entities from being viewable on their own page. So for example if you have an image content type which you never want to be accessible on node/xx then this is the module for you!

Dries Buytaert: Web personalization made simple: announcing the all-new Acquia Lift

Planet Drupal - 18 June 2019 - 3:15am

Today, we released a new version of Acquia Lift, our web personalization tool.

In today's world, personalization has become central to the most successful customer experiences. Most organizations know that personalization is no longer optional, but have put it off because it can be too difficult. The new Acquia Lift solves that problem.

While before, Acquia Lift may have taken a degree of fine-tuning from a developer, the new version simplifies how marketers create and launch website personalization. With the new version, anyone can point, click and personalize content without any code.

We started working on the new version of Acquia Lift in early 2018, well over a year ago. In the process we interviewed over 50 customers, redesigned the user interface and workflows, and added various new capabilities to make it easier for marketers to run website personalization campaigns. And today, at our European customer conference, Acquia Engage London, we released the new Acquia Lift to the public.

You can see all of the new features in action in this 5-minute Acquia Lift demo video:

The new Acquia Lift offers the best web personalization solution in Acquia's history, and definitely the best tool for Drupal.

Help Text Editor

New Drupal Modules - 17 June 2019 - 1:14pm

There is generally a disconnect between the site builder's who build and administer the content types and entities in a site and the content authors and editors who write the content.

The help text editor module attempts to smooth over some of this by providing dedicated forms for editing field help text, without requiring access to field configuration.
